A timeless story of human self-discovery and connection, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. The story is told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love while grappling with his own identity.
“MOONLIGHT IS A PROFOUNDLY MOVING FILM… A STUNNING ACHIEVEMENT.”
”ITS MESSAGE IS CLEAR: THE WORLD IS RICHER AND DEEPER AND MORE COMPLEX THAN WE EVER IMAGINED, AND EVEN ITS MOST TROUBLED CHARACTERS — JUST LIKE US — ARE LOOKING FOR LOVE.”
